Cozzolino Group

Thanks for visiting our group.  Have a look around and let us know if you have any questions or comments.


We are interested in solving socially relevant problems in a unique way.  Our chemical toolkit includes molecular and supramolecular materials that incorporate elements from across the periodic table.  We use DFT calculations to assist in targeting the best new materials.  See the research page or send me an email for more information.

Members of my team will acquire a wide variety of practical skills including inorganic synthesis and reactivity, structure determination through spectroscopic and diffraction techniques, and modern computational methods. I encourage my students to tackle modern research problems in creative ways, and I will assist them in obtaining a rigorous understanding of the underlying principles related to their research project.
